VCI Papers and Films

If you package metal parts for your business, NEUTECH Packaging System has a
full line of packaging embedded with Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors. Corrosion
inhibitor compounds vaporize and attach to the metal part, protect the packaged
part with a molecular layer, and then harmlessly dissipate upon
unpacking, leaving the metal part clean, corrosion-free and ready to use.
How VCI Works
inhibitor compounds vaporize from the paper or film. They are attracted to the
charged surface of the metal by virtue of their polar orientation.
The VCI molecules align on the surface of the metal to a depth of 3 to 5
molecules. This layer of molecules passivates the charged surface and creates a
barrier that prevents oxidation. The corrosion cell (the flow of electrons in
the metal and the flow of ions in the electrolytic surface layer) is unable to
establish itself. Corrosion is halted.
Airtight packing is not required!
Simply store or ship metal parts in VCI packaging. When the parts are unwrapped,
the protective layer immediately begins to dissipate. The metal parts are clean,
corrosion-free and ready to use. No washing, dipping or cleaning is necessary.
The VCI molecules migrate into recesses and hard to reach areas on even the most
complex shapes. The molecules build up on the metal surface until a continuous
barrier has formed on the metal part. VCI products from NEUTECH Packaging
Systems will prevent moisture, salt, dirt, oxygen, and other corrosion causing
materials from depositing directly on the metal and causing rust and corrosion.
Daubert Cromwell papers from NEUTECH Packaging Systems come in a variety of
grades. Larger or irregular shaped products should be protected with heavier
grades of paper, while smaller parts can use lighter basis weights. Several
products feature special substrates that combine corrosion protection with
barrier packaging. Barrier coated papers and films protect against moisture and
grease; laminated grades afford heavy duty protection against the environment.
Paper as a packaging material has it own unique advantages:
Easy to use
Good tensile strength
Scratch and abrasion resistant
Ideal for work layout
High-heat resistance, rigidity
Sets up VCI protection quickly
Daubert Cromwell papers from NEUTECH Packaging Systems are available in standard
36" or 48" rolls, and widths up to 120". Papers can be converted into bags,
envelopes, wrappers for individual parts, shrouds for large pieces or stacks of
parts, covers and liners.
NEUTECH Packaging Systems can provide several weights of kraft, plain or barrier
coated papers to protect against moisture and grease. Laminated grades are
available with polyethylene for heavy duty protection against the environment as
NEUTECH Packaging Systems can also custom-print paper with your logo for easy
brand identification to your customers. Your logo, instructions, or message
appears in crisp, clear detail.
VCI film products from NEUTECH Packaging Systems provide proven corrosion
protection. Through volatilization and contact, the nitrite-free VCI chemicals
protect metal parts against the corrosive effects of moisture, salt and other
contaminants while they are in process, storage or transit.
Polyethylene film has its own unique properties as a packaging material:
Highly water resistant
Can be applied automatically and removed quickly
The corrosion inhibitors are extruded right into the polyethylene film, not
superficially applied. As a result, the volatile and contact inhibitors provide
long-term corrosion protection for the most intricate and hard-to-reach
surfaces. The corrosion protection is clean, non-discernible, with no strong
Clear Pak film is transparent for easy inspection and identification of parts.
It will not affect the performance of the protected metal, and the parts are
ready to use immediately after removal from the packaging without additional
